    Spontaneous Human Combustion, (also known as SHC) is the idea that the human body is able to spontaneously combust, although the specific cause is unknown. Theories include the Wick Effect, large alcohol consumption, and chemical reactions, along with accidental ignition. There are many though, who are skeptic of the possibility SHC itself. Even though there are numerous reported cases that have occurred over past centuries. According to L.A Parry, in The British Medical Journal (1938), the common

    Hydrogen as an Alternative Fuel What is Hydrogen? The simplest and lightest fuel is hydrogen gas (H2). Hydrogen is in a gaseous state at atmospheric pressure and ambient temperatures. Hydrogen is being explored for use in combustion engines and fuel cell electric vehicles. On a volumetric basis, the energy density of hydrogen is very low under ambient conditions. This presents greater transportation and storage hurdles than for liquid fuels. Storage systems being developed include compressed
